"He was hired at reduced salary."
Do I need to put an "a" right before "reduced"?
So "He was hired at reduced salary" is absolutely wrong?
Is it a British English/American English divergence?
So, "He was hired at reduced salary" is:
(1) wrong under British standards.
(2) correct under Australian standards.
I'm a BrE speaker and I would use "He was hired at a reduced salary".
So, "salary" is always countable in BrE?
My Longman dictionary of contemporary English says it's countable and uncountable. How should I understand this?
